The Wild have a Need for Speed on the Top Line!

Locked On Wild - Your Daily Minnesota Wild Podcast

Mar 24 2023 • 35 mins

On today's episode of Locked on Wild, Jayden Homuth joins to recap a tough shootout loss to Philadelphia. We talk about what the appropriate reaction is given the Wild had a high emotion game against New Jersey on Tuesday. We look at the inability of the Wild to get any separation against the Flyers, and an opportunity for two points squandered by several miscues. We discuss the top line, and their lack of speed being an issue despite Marcus Foligno scoring. We propose a lineup suggestion to help that problem while also maintaining the physical presence of the third line. We also discuss the special teams and their recent struggles, and whether or not the Wild are getting too predictable in shootouts or simply being in too many shootouts.
